Heck, even I would be interested in something like that. It doesn't even have to be carbon fiber. It just can't be 1 million dollars (or $200) like the ones I've seen.

I don't want to jack an awesome thread;
But I bought cheap discount carbon fiber cloth, found the best, clearest, most sun-resistant epoxy I could find, some cheap nomex honeycomb, vacuum bagging films, and have been experimenting since.

I've got less than $200 in the whole mess; and it's fairly easy to do.

I wouldn't want to make anything structural, but I'm going to do decorative stuff.

This is some of the cloth:

That looks really cool, but I think I'll pass on the carbon fiber cloth. I'll just end up painting the bezel black and be done with it. I keep finding myself buying stuff that I really don't need. For example these valve cover plates. I really don't need them but I couldn't pass up a custom CNC design. I'm having them powder coat to look like the ones on the bottom.

Another update

The oil pan fits. The pick up is spot on. With the headers, oil pan the starter fits with no clearance issues.

Used some silly puddy to see what the clearence from the bottom of the sump.











If you get a 2011+ Mustang 5.0 the oil adapter will hit the sway bar. You can replace it with one from a 2011+ F150 5.0, get a oil cooler / remote oil filter kit. I found a F150 adapter cheap on eBay for $20.



Headers and oil pan, coming together!

That's an Addco sway bar correct? Those use the 3.8/5.0 design which splays out quite a bit wider than the 4.6 bar, which hugs the pan shape and K member pretty tightly, so sourcing a different oil filter adapter may not be necessary with one of those.

Q: With the F150 filter relocation adapter, what is the clearance between the top of front sway bar and the bottom of the oil filter.

If they are practically touching, does the front swaybar move slightly under compression? It's hard to tell top-down from the picture if this is something to be concerned about.

With the car in the air the sway bar is about 2 inches away. Once I drop the car and the weight is on the suspension the sway bar will move down towards the ground giving more clearence from the sway bar and oil filter. Unless I hit a jump and go airborne maybe the sway will hit the bottom? Hoping to keep the front wheels on the ground, no wheelies for me.

The build is looking great Josh. The motor fits nicely in there. Do you have abs on the car? I'm curious what side you're going to put the air filter .

This is just plain awesome sauce right here! I happened to google K-member and the tubular MN-12 K-member happened to be on the first page. I saw that and thought it couldn't be that hard to install a coyote engine. Then the next day I stumble upon this topic. Great job!

Another update. I'm going with a manual valve body from Lentech and a Hurst pistol grip quarter shift. The 4R75W is getting a forged forward clutch drum and the valve body installed, a dyno with the TC at my local transmission shop that I trust with no bull shit.

Since this is a full manual I have to wire buttons for the TC lock up and overdrive. I'll probably wire the red button on the hurst as the overdrive and put a button on the center console dash for the lock up.






I bought this 1/4 steel plate 12x4" to mount the hurst shifter. Drilled the holes and mounted nice a strong.










I had to cut a little tab out in the front, not bad.

I don't know if it will go like that, but something of that sort.

I got the headers back from ceramic coating. The valve covers back from powder coating. I'm hoping mid May or June 1st for a start up.

Little update:

A few weeks ago I got the transmission back.



The engine and transmission are in the car for good, I did that a week ago or so.

Today I was able to put in the headers and starter. Tomorrow I'm hoping to start more on the wiring and install the radiator and fan. More to come!
